Head for the Hills runs after school mountain bike skills programs for kids wanting to try mountain biking as well as those looking to develop their skills. The program is based in mountain bike parks around the Mitcham area and is designed for kids aged 10 to 14. There are no pre-requisites for participants and the program is perfect for beginners, so long as they can ride confidently on two wheels.

2019 Program Information

In 2019 we will run two programs, spanning approximately six months each. Both the Autumn and Spring programs will be identical meaning participants can choose the one that best fits into their schedule without missing out! There will be groups for both beginner and intermediate riders held weekly on Thursday afternoons.

Groups will be arranged according to age, experience and skill level. The program focuses on the key skills of mountain biking and will develop the students:

  • Bike handling and balance
  • Control and trail reading
  • Technique (discipline independent)

Students will also learn about the non-practical aspects of mountain biking, including:

  • Trail etiquette for shared-use networks
  • Risk assessment and management skills
  • Knowledge of participation opportunities

Balance skills learned at slow speed enhance control & accuracy on faster trails
